There's never a time where Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard aren't candid about parenting.

The pair has two daughters, Lincoln, 8, and Delta, 6. One time, the couple shared how they broke the news to their young kids that Santa Claus isn't real.

"This is going to be very controversial," Dax told Us Weekly.

"I have a fundamental rule that I will never lie to them, which is challenging at times," he continued.

"Our 5-year-old started asking questions like, 'Well, this doesn't make sense, and that doesn't make sense," he said.

"I'm like, 'You know what? This is just a fun thing we pretend while it's Christmas.'"

The couple also hopped on the shower debate that swept through Hollywood.


For a recap, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher said that they only bathe their kids when they see dirt on them.

Dax and Kristen share a similar approach. "We bathed our children every single night—prior to bed is like the routine," Dax said during a joint appearance on The View.

"And then somehow, they just started going to sleep on their own without the routine."

"And by George, we had to start saying, 'Hey, when's the last time you bathed them?'" he continued.

"I'm a big fan of waiting for the stink," added Kristen. "Once you catch a whiff, that's biology's way of letting you know you need to clean it up."

So when it came to Dax sucking out Kristen's clogged ducts, she didn't hold back.

But first, a lesson on clogged ducts for anyone who's scratching their heads. This is when there's a blockage in the breast milk. It's often the result of a baby not fully draining the breast.

When the milk builds up behind the blockage, you might feel discomfort and a small, hard lump in the breast.

It's imperative to fix the clog since mothers need to feed their babies.

Kristen shared Dax's role in this on Momsplaining, a segment of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

She and former *Scandal* star, Katie Lowes, were discussing the difficulties of breastfeeding.

"I said to my husband, 'I just need you to suck this out,'" Bell recalled.

"We could talk about it. We could be weird about it, or you could just go ahead and nurse."

Shepard didn't stop and think about it; he just went for it.

"He pulled it out. He had a cup next to him," Bell explained.

"He was pulling out and spitting into this cup, and I've never been more in love in my life."

Many on Twitter were thoroughly grossed out by this confession.

"Some things do not need to be shared," one tweeted. "I’ve never gagged at a headline before till now," added another.

There was some praise for Dax, with one writing, "not all heroes wear capes."

Kristen not the only celebrity to make this confession.

Kristen Cavallari also had her husband suck out her clogged duct.

The reality star has three kids with her ex, Jay Cutler. She hated breastfeeding so much that she once said she "was a slave to breastfeeding" before eventually moving on to goat formula...

She revealed the juicy secret (pardon the pun) during an episode of *Very Cavallari*.

"I had, like, major clogged ducts," she shared.

"Jay had to get them out for me. Sucking harder than he's ever sucked before," she continued. “And you know what? Saved my life," she later added in a confessional.
